I met Maurice Wilkins while at a conference in Naples, Italy. He lectured on  a revolutionary technique called x-ray crystallography. In this picture he is using the machine to take a photo of DNA. This was first time I was able to see a picture of the molecule and was the beginning of my quest to find its structure.

Genetic Scientist Maurice Wilkins. 1960s.   Henry Kendall, one of the main characters in the book, is interested in genetics.  Like Wilson, he is a genetic scientist.  Henry studies how human DNA can be combined.  He created Dave, the human-chimpanzee hybrid by mistake in his lab.

Narrative - Rosalind Franklin - Linus Pauling and the Race for DNA: A Documentary History

Rosalind Franklin was such a strong, ambitious, hardworking scientist that made the discovery of DNA structure possible despite the prejudices that made her contribution unlikely.

Rosalind Elsie Franklin waited in the upstairs library until the guest and participants started to arrive. That night, Rosalind Elsie Franklin would wear a dress designed by Tatiana Parfionova.

The Wellcome Trust is digitising about a million images and documents charting the history of genetics. Among them is an X-ray photograph of DNA taken in 1952, cartoons, personal correspondence of Francis Crick, James Watson, Maurice Wilkins and Rosalind Franklin, who all played a part in discovering its structure.
